Gluten-Free Pumpkin Pancakes with Peanut Butter Cup Syrup 

Total Time: 30 minutes
Makes: 8 pancakes  

Ingredients (for the pancakes):

1 cup gluten-free all-purpose flour
1 tbsp coconut flour
¼ cup pumpkin puree 
2 large eggs
1 tbsp baking powder
1 tbsp raw honey 
1 cup unsweetened almond milk
½ tsp sea salt
¼ tsp nutmeg
¼ tsp cinnamon 
¼ tsp ginger
½ tsp vanilla extract 

Ingredients (for the syrup):

½ cup pure maple syrup
¼ oz bittersweet chocolate (chopped)
2 tsp all-natural peanut butter


1) Combine maple syrup, chopped chocolate, and peanut butter in a blender and blend for 30 seconds.  Add contents of blender to a small saucepan and heat over medium heat, whisking constantly until chocolate and peanut butter have melted and the syrup is smooth and thick, 1-2 minutes.  Kill the heat and set aside.  

2) Combine AP flour, coconut flour, baking powder, salt, nutmeg, cinnamon, and ginger in a large mixing bowl and stir to combine.

3) Combine pumpkin puree, eggs, honey, almond milk, and vanilla in a small bowl and whisk to combine.

4) Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and whisk just until a smooth batter forms.  

5) Heat a non-stick, or cast iron pan over medium heat, spray with non-stick spray and wipe out with a clean paper towel so that only the thinnest layer of grease remains.  

6) Add ¼ Cup of pancake batter to pan and cook until bubbles in center of cake begin to set, approx. 2 minutes.

7) Flip cake and cook an additional 1-2 minutes until underside is browned.  Remove to a plate, then repeat process with additional batter until all pancakes are finished.

8) Top each pancake with 1 T finished syrup and enjoy!
